SecureWave, a worldwide leader in endpoint security software, has strengthened support for its UK channel partners by appointing IT-Management & Professional Services (IT-MPS) to provide technical product training in the UK. Resellers that pass the online examination will be awarded the SecureWave Sanctuary Engineer Diploma, demonstrating that they are able to deliver security design and management best practice for today’s business requirements. IT-MPS will also provide consultative services and pre-sales support to smaller resellers.
IT-MPS, an InterQuad partner, will provide one day courses at customers’ premises worldwide, or at one of IT-MPS’ training centres in the UK. This will provide Sanctuary resellers and end-users with training in security best practice, architecture design, configuration, administration and platform support.
SecureWave products protect 1.5 million endpoints at more than 1,200 organisations worldwide from the threat of malicious, unauthorised or unknown executables and devices. Unlike outdated blacklisting methods, SecureWave’s Sanctuary suite employs a proactive whitelist approach to
enforce company security policy. This works by stopping all unwanted executables, including spyware, trojans and illegal software and enforcing the safe use of all approved removable devices, from iPods to external hard drives.
“We are delighted to have been chosen to provide training for SecureWave Sanctuary products. From our extensive industry contacts we knew that IT staff really benefit from gaining hands on training in our labs. The Sanctuary Engineer Diploma course was developed in consultation with the industry’s leading experts and has already been successfully delivered to a UK military organisation,” commented Mark Connelly, IT-MPS Managing Director. “
Louis Oley, SecureWave’s UK Managing Director, said of the partnership: “SecureWave has reached almost 1.5 million licences worldwide, thanks largely to our strong channel partnerships. We want to show our commitment to the channel, by giving our resellers the best advantage in presales situations and ensuring that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to best serve our customers as we scale the business”
